A submarine eruption reported in 1839 from a seamount (identified as JF6 by Yanez et al., 2009) at the eastern end of the Juan Fernandez island chain is considered highly suspect (Catalog of Active Volcanoes of the World). Although an ephemeral island was reportedly formed, the seamount has a depth of more than 600 m and lies at the eastern end of an island chain that is progressively younger to the west.
